1. Interesting statistic.

    20 December 2014

    Looking at an online property research tool this morning.

    According to their figures we are the agent ( of eighteen local offices ) with the smallest percentage of sales that have fallen through recently.

    Thats 0%.

    Impressive.


  2. When will prices start to rise?

    13 December 2014

    The answer to that may be ” after we’ve bought one”. Well that would be mine if was a first time buyer. The answer is…. Quite soon…. The changes in stamp duty will certainly make a difference and in Cramlington the signs are already here….
    Not much on the market. Renewed confidence. More shopping. New hospital. Improved road connections and a lot more besides.
    The new Parkside school development has been advertised by Taylor Wimpey ( who are not quoting prices ).
    Clever…. They will be gauging interest in the site before setting prices and they won’t be cheap.
    The more hits they get on the web site then the higher the prices may be.
    They aren’t building many and If it’s over subscribed they can push things up a bit.
    It’s your move.
    Need any help or advice? Our number is 01670 730073.


  3. Hospital Radio… tune in…

    8 December 2014

    BBC Radio Newcastle are doing a feature  just after 8 tomorrow morning  and have asked us to comment on the impact that the new hospital is expected to have on Cramlington property values. Tune in if you are up! 95.4 FM


  4. You can’t rely on these online tools

    5 December 2014

    Looking at a couple of well known property websites offering valuation models of a particular 2 bed house in Cramlington. What a difference!
    No names here but there was near enough a £20,000 difference.
    These sites put themselves forward as accurate models but fall far short of the mark.
    No substitute for local knowledge.
    That’s why we are here.


  5. Stamp duty again….

    3 December 2014

    New rules come in immediately. You may need a calculator or some smart mental arithmetic to work this out but there are savings on everything but the really expensive property purchases.


  6. Stamp duty changes



    Changes mean that house purchase up to £125,000, no stamp duty payable as now.
    £125,001 to £250,000 then you pay 2% on the portion over the nil rate.
    Example: buy at £200,000 you will pay £500 less than you do now.

    Buy at £150,000 you will pay £500 ( instead of the £1,500 you
    would pay now.


  7. 2%

    2 December 2014

    According to a property blog I read today about 2% of properties in England are sold by online agents.

    Do the maths.

    The end.


  8. A new place to find your next home.

    27 November 2014

    ‘OnTheMarket’ launches in the New Year. Designed for agents to get you where you want to be with no clutter, no adverts or no computer generated valuations (using statistics which are usually way off the mark). Thousands of  leading agents are switching to this new portal which goes live on 26th January 2015. OnThe Market is set to become the first and favourite portal for house hunters.

    On The Market - coming January 2015

    Renown are among the leading agents using this portal. With over 90% of buyers and tenants starting their search on the internet, many of whom use mobile devices, the site will be optimised for all searches. It will be uncluttered with no spam, no adverts, just your house, its particulars and photos.

    The service will be available to real agents with established offices. No virtual, online-only or working from back bedroom style “agents”. No builders, no developers. Just you and your potential buyer.

    To find out more, give us a call on 01670 730073 or call into our office at Smithy Square, Cramlington.
